Currently Loving...Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Aging Perfector

Finally, warm weather has arrived in Michigan. This past Sunday we probably spent 5 hours playing outside, walking uptown and eating on patios. Now that we have sun and we're spending more time outside, I'm working on incorporating SPF in my skincare routine.

I'm currently loving Neutrogena's Healthy Skin Anti-Aging Perfector. It has everything I'm looking for in my every day makeup routine:

  • SPF 20 to help protect my skin from harmful rays
  • Tinted moisturizer to even out my skin tone
  • Retinol to help reduce fine lines

I use a makeup sponge (previously talked about my makeup sponge on my other blog, The Non-Housewives) to put this on, and it goes on really smooth. I don't feel like I'm wearing makeup when I use Anti-Aging Perfector, and my bronzer and blush lays nicely over it. This is the first time I've been able to wear makeup like this without breaking out. I'm hooked.

I'm going to stock up on this for summer so I never run out. I may purchase a shade darker for summer. It's so easy to throw on over moisturizer, and I can always use the extra SPF. This is going to be my go-to for Summer!

You can find Neutrogena products online or at a store near you.

Neutrogena sent me products to review as part of their Ambassador program. All thoughts are my own. 


Target Marimekko Launch April 17


Mark your calendars and set your alarms - the Target & Marimekko collaboration launches this Sunday! I have my eye on the stand up paddle board, kids tent and swimsuit coverups.

Call your local Target and find out if they will have this in store - not all Targets will! If they won't, have no fear, you can shop online. The past few successful collaborations have caused the Target site to crash. I have no idea if this will be a popular one, so just keep checking the site and be patient.

If you go in store, try and have a good idea of what you want to buy, and go directly to that department. Stuff will go fast! Happy Shopping - please share what you get in the comments!







Scentbird Perfume Subscription Review

Scentbird Perfume Subscription Review
I love a good monthly subscription box…and I’ve tried a lot! Birchbox, Ipsy and Glossy Box for beauty, Citrus Lane for babies and kids…all so much fun to get in the mail each month. It’s a great way to discover new brands you wouldn’t normally seek out.

I recently checked out Scentbird, who has taken a unique twist on the monthly subscription business model. With Scentbird, you get a 30 day sample of perfume each month. You get to choose which perfume (over 350 to choose from!) or you can take a survey to see if there is a new scent that you should try, based on your preferences.

Scentbird Perfume Subscription ReviewNot only is each month’s sample a generous size, but it comes in a fun, travel friendly holder you can use each month for your new scent. I'm the type of person who gets tired of the same scent over and over, so this service is nice to keep my perfumes up to date. After taking my first quiz, it was suggested that I try out Hanae Mori, which is a scent I have never heard of! I thought, what the heck, and selected it as my scent for the month - and I'm so happy I did! I love the scent. It's something I never would have tried if I just smelled at the perfume counter, but once it's on me, I'm love it. 

Interested? Sign up! It’s $44 for a 3 month package, $84 for a 6 month plan, and $164 for a year. Sign up today and receive 15% off your first your first month

  • Rosamund Pike's 2015 Oscars Look


    photo credit: TPR Holdings
    One of my favorite movies this year was Gone Girl. I read the book (couldn't put it down!) and LOVED the movie. I was excited to see Rosamund Pike looking super sexy and glamorous on the red carpet last night. 

    Her hair was styled with Oscar Blandi products by Kylee Rae Heath. Here's the breakdown from Kylee:

    "It was key to have it look easy and untried. We wanted to create tons of texture."

    TO CREATE THE LOOK:

    1.       Starting on damp hair I sprayed Oscar Blandi Protein Mist throughout the hair.

    2.        I then applied Oscar Blandi Hair Lift Mousse and combed the product through. 

    3.       Next, I blew her hair out creating volume and movement. Before using a Sultra 3/4 inch sized barrel and a 1inch sized marcel iron to create texture, I sprayed Oscar Blandi Dry Styling Heat Protect Spray

    4.       Once the texture was in place, I used a comb to section from behind the left ear, over the head to the top of the right ear. 

    5.       I pulled the back section into a ponytail. Then, looking in a mirror together, I pulled the front section back to meet the ponytail securing with bobby pins.

    6.       I sprayed the look into place and twisted the ponytail into a bun and pinned it. Then finished the look with the Pronto Lacca Medium Hold Hairspray and applied the Polish Glossing Creme to the short hair of her undercut.  

    Oscar Blandi products can be found at Ulta.com. Personally, I'm a huge fan of Oscar Blandi hairspray. It smells so good!




    Quick Beauty Favorites

    I've always been a fan of products that make my beauty routine easier and faster, but since becoming a mom, I worship these products! Here are a few that I have been hooked on...
    OPI Avoplex Cuticle Oil To Go

    OPI Avoplex Cuticle Oil To Go
    The key word is 'to go.' I love this stuff. I've always been a huge fan of OPI Avoplex Cuticle Oil but the 'to go' version is genius. Who wants to carry around a far of this in their purse, just waiting to leak or spill? This makes it easy to keep my cuticles moisturized during this miserable Michigan winter. I like to apply it before I put my winter gloves on, letting it soak in real good while I'm driving with my gloves on.
    Benefit Cosmetics Lollitint
    Benefit Cosmetics Lollitint
    I can feel confident and get out the door really quick with this stuff. A swipe on both my cheeks gives me great color that makes me look ready to conquer the day (even though I'm probably running on limited sleep). The purple undertones mask redness in my face. I also use this on my lips as well, with a gloss over it. 

    Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm
    Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm
    Michigan winters are harsh on faces! We're currently in the middle of Snowmagedden and I'm pretty much snowed in for the next few days. My poor lips have been so dry being outside in the cold and inside the house with heat on. I recently received a sample of Nuxe Reve de Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm and fell in love. I normally prefer petroleum based balms but this one contains beeswax and I love how it feels on my lips. It's not drying at all. Goes on smooth and has lasting power.

    OPI Sheer Tint in Be Magentale with Me

    OPI Sheer Tint in Be Magentale with MeI'm always keeping my eyes open for pretty, light nail polish shades for every day wear for work. I spotted the new OPI Sheer Tints Top Coats and had to buy the pinkish-red Be Magentale with Me shade. In the bottle, it reminded me so much of a fun nail polish I had when I was younger.

    I LOVE this polish as a quick go-to polish that will go with every outfit. I've seen other bloggers put 3-4 coats on it to make it more opaque, but I like the sheer look with my white tips coming through (this is right after I had my son, and the prenatal vitamins were still working overtime...such long nails!). Pictured is just two coats over my natural nail. It's such a elegant, clean look. I use this polish all the time! 

    You can find this Sheer Tint on Amazon for $7.25. What do you think? Do you like the look of this sheer polish? Or would you be more likely to wear it over a color coat?

    TruAge Skin AGE Therapy Gel

    As a 33 year old with a magnified mirror in her bathroom, I'm constantly obsessing and spotting new wrinkles and skin blemishes. It doesn't help that I have a newborn at home that doesn't like sleeping much, so my skin is so tired looking these days. I'm open to trying any new products that help with aging skin.

    I recently learned about TrueAge Skin AGE Therapy Gel, created by Morinda. Morinda is the leading creator of anti-aging beverages, supplements and skin care products, and most recently, this new gel.

    AGE stands for advanced glycation end-products, which causes skin damage, also known as glycation. Do you know what glycation is? If not, don't worry, I had to Google it. Glycation occurs when excess sugars in the bloodstream bind with proteins in the skin, causing stiffness and inelasticity, while impairing the skin's protective function. AGE Therapy Gel helps to improve the skin's appearance while boosting its protective layer.

    According to Kira Davis, Morinda's global product development manager, "glycation is responsible for virtually every sign of aging and can have a devastating effect on skin." TruAge Skin AGE Therapy Gel is created from the best ingredients found in Morinda's flagship AGE-fighting product, TruAge Max.

    AGE Therapy Gel works well along side any skin care routine. I have really sensitive skin and I had no issues when I tested it out. The gel is really light weight and absorbs very quickly. Here are the key benefits:

    It Protects...The topical TruAge Max blend is compromised of ingredients that create a protective barrier against AGE accelerators such as free radicals, environmental damage and moisture loss

    It Soothes...Oat kernel extract and beta-glucan provide a soothing effect on skin, reducing redness and irritation, as well as helping to strengthen the skin's barrier function.

    It Repairs...Carnosine has been shown to block AGE damage, protect minor cuts, scrapes and burns, and relieve dry, chapped skin. It also protects and relieves chafed and irritated skin. 

    So what do you think? Would you be interested in trying this out? AGE Therapy Gel is available now exclusively at Morinda.com at a special introductory price of $42. Check back tomorrow for a special giveaway from Lipgloss Break!

    Get the Look: Kerry Washington by Neutrogena


    Kerry Washington looked stunning last night at the Golden Globes. Seeing her made me even more antsy for new episodes of Scandal! Kerry is a Brand Ambassador for Neutrogena, which created her look last night. Below are the details on the inspiration behind her makeup and hair, and how to achieve this look!

    Makeup Artist: Carola Gonzalez

    Makeup Inspiration:
    Today's inspiration sprung from the design of the dress, Greek designer Mary Katrancou, 1950's silhouette with a modern edge. I wanted to accentuate Kerry's eyes with a modern twist. I kept it pretty simple, a black line all around the eye layered with a shimmery dark grey eye shadow to break away from the usual black liner and add a spark to the eyes. The lips I kept sheer with a hint of color to compliment the fuchsia shade of the dress without overpowering the eyes or final look.

    Cosmetic Get the Look Breakdown:
    To begin the Golden Globe's makeup process, I began by prepping Kerry's skin with Neutrogena Hydro Boost moisturizer. During winter months skin is dryer than most months, out of the year, and Neutrogena Hydro Boost moisturizer is the way to go. It's truly a skin quencher, it adds just the right amount of moisture needed without making skin look oily. Once fully absorbed I start by highlighting under the eye area and then applying foundation all over face to even out skin: I used Kevyn Aucoin Skin Enhancer SX13.

    I proceeded with Kerry's eyes using Neutrogena Nourishing Eyeliner in Cosmic Black. I lined the eye all around the outer area of the eye, around lash line. Then lined the inner rim of the lower lash with the same liner. Since I wanted to give the appearance of a shimmery liner, I layered the eye liner, using a tiny brush, with the new Neutrogena Nourishing Long Wear eye shadow shimmery dark silver from the Smokey Steel Palette. (the third one from the top).

    To complete the eye makeup, mascara is a must! I applied a couple of coats to the upper and lower lashes with Kerry's favorite mascaraNeutrogena Healthy Lengths in Carbon Black.

    For the cheeks I always like to add an extra touch of glow and color. In this case I chose Neutrogena Healthy Custom Glow Blush & Bronzer in Posie Glow. I got two shades in one, the perfect combo, to create the desired radiance and color for the look. I applied it from the apple of the cheek in an upward motion towards the temples.

    The lips are always my last step, choosing the right shade is critical to the final look. Since the dress already had a vibrant color, I decided to go with a sheer berry lip to compliment the fuchsia shade of the dress. I used Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick in Bright Berry.
    Hair Stylist: Takisha Sturdivant-Drew

    Hair Inspiration:
    My inspiration for Kerry's dress was it’s a period look with a modern edge to it. So I wanted to do the same for her hair. I decided to pull her hair back but nothing to serious, so I kept it very tight on the sides with some height on top, and gave her a messy centered bun with some twists and braids. It's a modern look, but with a flirty feel that's always fun.

    Hair Get the Look Breakdown:
    I shampooed and conditioned her hair with the Neutrogena Triple Repair Fortifying Shampoo and Conditioner. Then I left a dime size of theTriple Repair Fortifying Leave-In Treatment to protect her hair from the heat and give it a great shine. Secondly I blew her hair out with a comb attachment blow dryer, but left some texture in her hair. Then I curled certain pieces of her hair with my 1-inch curling iron. Finally I teased her hair on top and in the center, took her hair and pulled it into a messy chic bun. Her hair went well with the Mary Katrancou Dress and it was a great 


    Get the Look: Kristen Wiig by Tracey Levy for Charlotte Tilbury



    I loved Kristen Wigg's fresh look on the red carpet last night. Her makeup was done by makeup artist Tracey Levy. Here are the steps she used to create the look:

    1. Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay Mask (launching in March) was used to prep the skin by smoothing the skin and totally blurring all imperfections while minimizing the appearance of pores.

    2. Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream was used generously on Kristen’s skin for the perfect amount of moisture. The Magic Cream was also an excellent primer for the makeup.

    3. Levy prepped Kristen’s lips with Charlotte Tilbury Lip Magic Balm (launching in March).

    4. Levy then brushed a wash of the #1 Prime shade from Luxury Palette in The Sophisticate all over Kristen’s lids. Levy then added a light dust of #2 Enhance shade through her crease. She then used the #1 color from Luxury Palette in The Vintage Vamp on her lid for a highlight.

    5. Levy then used a small brush and applied Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick in Las Salinas (launching in March) along Kristen’s lash line and outer corner of her eyes. Levy used this as a base to blend the two darker colors from the Luxury Palette in The Vintage Vamp to create a reddish-pink. Levy then applied a bit more of the #1 in her inner corners.

    6. Levy used a Shu Uemura Eye Lash Curler to curl Kristen’s lashes before applying a light coat of Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes Mascara in Glossy Black.

    7. For the face, Levy lightly blended a mix of Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation in 4 Fair and 6 Medium, keeping the lighter mix in the inner part of Kristen’s face and blending the darker towards the outside. Levy used a foundation brush and blended with a moist beauty blender.

    8. Charlotte Tilbury The Retoucher Concealer in 2 Fair and 4 Medium were then blended with Levy’s ring finger and a beauty blender. For the highlight, Levy used Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow along the top of Kristen’s cheekbones and the bridge of her nose.

    9. For Kristen’s cheek color, Levy mixed the Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick in Las Salinas on the outer top of her apples blended upwards then Levy blended the Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick in Formentera under the apples and out for a bit of dimension.

    10. Levy then lightly set Kristen’s makeup with touch of Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder in 2 Medium.

    11. For a bit more “punch,” Levy dusted a bit of Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic in Love is the Drug. To enhance the highlight of Kristen’s cheekbones, Levy dusted Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow under her cheekbones and jawline.

    12. Kristen’s brows were natural but enhanced with Charlotte Tilbury Brow Lift in Cara D and Brooke S.

    13. Kristen’s lips were then finished with a bit more Charlotte Tilbury Lip Magic then defined with Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk. The lips were filled in with a soft finger and Levy applied Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Very Victoria (launching in fall 2015).

    14. Since Kristen’s dress is over the shoulder, Levy rubbed Charlotte Tilbury Multi-Miracle Glow on her shoulders and chest to make the skin look luminous.

    Must Have Products for a New Mom

    I'm guilty of having the unrealistic expectation that I was going to have a lot of free time during maternity leave. OMG - I couldn't have been more wrong! If I get a shower in I call it a successful day! I'm currently loving products that make my routine a bit easier. Below are some of my favorite items so far on maternity leave...
    1) Neutrogena Makeup Remover wipes - I love these for when I'm a pinch or on the go. Sometimes I have to use these in the car on the way to the gym! These makeup remover wipes are a quick and easy to use to remove makeup. They don't make my skin feel greasy and are especially good at removing eye makeup. I like to keep a package in my diaper bag and gym bag.

    2) Noodle & Boo The Balm - I LOVE this lotion. It smells like a sweet baby :) With the cold weather in full effect in Michigan, my skin is so dry. I keep this lotion in my diaper bag for both myself and my baby boy. My hands are constantly on my baby, so I'm extra careful of the lotions I put on my hands. The best part about Noodle & Boo products is that they are safe for both mommy and baby - win/win!

    3) Dove Dry Shampoo - I can usually sneak in a shower, but washing my hair is a whole other battle. It seems like I never have time to dry it all the way straight unless someone else is home helping with the baby. I packed this dry shampoo in my hospital bag and have been using it ever since. When I use this dry shampoo my hair looks really fresh. It also has a great, nice and fresh scent (usually I don't like the smell of dry shampoos).

    4) Bath & Body Works Antibacterial - I'm fanatical about sanitizing my hands now that I'm a mommy. I keep several of these everywhere: car, diaper bag, purse, living room, kitchen...no excuse for someone not to use them before picking up the bambino! Bath and Body Works usually has them on sale for 5 for $5. Great idea for stocking stuffers too :)

    5) Love + Grace PJ set - It's a struggle to take this pajama set off....because they are so comfortable! I was super excited to try these out. They are the softest pajamas I have ever owned. And as a nursing mom, it's key to have an easy, button down PJ top to go over a nursing tank. The first few weeks at home with bambino I was in my PJs the entire day, so if you're going to be a new mom, I'd highly recommend splurging on an ultra-comfortable pair like these.

    6) Bath & Body Works Fragrance Mist - There's something about Fall and Winter that make me crave vanilla scents! The Bath & Body Works Wild Madagascar Vanilla Fragrance Mist, in my opinion, is the perfect scent for the holiday seasons. I've been staying away from strong perfumes because I don't want them to irritate my baby boy, but this light mist is perfect to spray on my body, and even hair, to make me feel (and smell!) pretty.

    NUBAR Nail Lacquer 'Fall in Love' Collection

    Now that I'm a mom, it's a lot harder to find time to paint my nails and allow them to dry properly, so when I get the chance, I want to find a polish that will last. I'm a huge fan of gel manicures, but they're not practical to have all the time. I recently tried out Nubar Nail Lacquer for the first time and was really happy with the wear time.

    Nubar Nail Lacquer is formaldehyde, toluene and DBP free. They pride themselves in being a 'healthy' nail polish, which is something I look for now since I have a newborn at home and my hands are constantly around him.

    Normally I only get 2 days wear out of regular nail polish, but I had a really good run with Nubar polish. Love American Style is a creamy red that goes well with every season, especially Fall. This lasted, chip free, about 5 days on my nails. After 5 days I had minor signs of wear, but the manicure still looked good.

    Lush is a pretty blue that is perfect for fall and blue jean and jean jacket weather. This manicure also lasted about 5 days on me (credit to my BFF Tina for giving me this manicure).

    Nubar Lush
    Sweet Hue is a bright pop of color for your hands. It's a pinkish-coral with a slight gold shimmer. I really liked this shade. It took 3 coats to achieve complete coverage, but was worth it! This color will transition nicely into Spring and Summer.
